[ laughter ] that's good stuff. >> steve: after market. >> jimmy: a pro, getting a lot of repeat customers. con, mostly because they forgot they were just in your store five minutes ago. [ laughter ] "i think i need some weed, man." "did you check your right pocket?" "oh, yeah, thanks." [ laughter ] pro, putting up a sign that says "no shirt, no shoes, no service." con, immediately going out of business. [ laughter ] you got to know your clientele. >> steve: gotta know your customers. >> jimmy: pro, stores in
washington expect people to buy over ten pounds of weed today. con, or as snoop dogg calls that "tuesday." [ laughter ] he cut back a little. >> steve: yeah, he cut back a a little bit. >> jimmy: he's cutting back. pro, seattle's gone all out to promote the new pot stores. con, the space needle now looks like this -- [ laughter ] ah, it's beautiful. pro, the customer is always right. con, your customers are always "all right, all right, all right."

on the plane?" but there was no wifi, so it definitely wasn't me. >> jimmy: no truth to that at all. but you said to me earlier that you sleep shop. and i just nodded. and i said, "yeah," and i walked away. and then i go, "what the hell was he talking about?" [ laughter ] what does that mean, sleep shop? >> well, it means -- i used to take this pill to help me sleep. and then, i guess when i was asleep, i'd take out my ipad and i'd just start shopping. and these packages kept showing up at my house. and i was like, "oh, my god! identity fraud or something." but then i'd look up the history in my ipad. "oh, nope. i bought this." and the things that i would get were just crazy. like, i got like a full marie antoinette portrait. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: how would you even find that? >> i -- it came! i did! it's -- >> jimmy: marie antoinette portrait. >> yeah, it's in my bathroom. it's a great conversation piece.
